Changing lives province-wide

The online auction that raises vital funds for the New Car Dealers Foundation of BC and Special Olympics BC has a brand-new name and look!

The longtime event is now known as the Auction for Athletes, sporting an eye-catching new look that will turn heads and expand reach to make a difference for our two charities. While this annual fundraiser has a fresh coat of paint, under the hood is the same high-performance engine that’s been changing lives for more than three decades.  

Previously known as the New Car Dealers Foundation / Special Olympics BC Auction, the event supports Special Olympics BC’s empowering programs for athletes with intellectual disabilities, and the foundation’s grants and scholarships for automotive industry programs.

B.C.’s New Car Dealers

Since 1984, the New Car Dealers Association of BC has been committed to supporting Special Olympics BC through the New Car Dealers Foundation of BC. These dedicated supporters contribute to the empowerment, health, and skill development of our athletes through several important initiatives. 

Through more than three decades, the Auction for Athletes has raised over $5.4 million to support SOBC’s life-changing year-round sport programs for people with intellectual disabilities, and the empowering work of the New Car Dealers Foundation.  

Sincere thanks to the New Car Dealers Association of BC and Dealers throughout the province for helping Special Olympics BC enrich lives and create inclusive communities through the power and joy of sport.
